Get the best from your business

We understand how important it is for you to have the backing of a supportive Awarding Organisation that helps you do this.

We are dedicated to helping you to provide the skills and training needed for your employees and to support your business needs. We deliver the very best service, advice and guidance so that you can do what you do best – help your employees on their journeys to success and achievement and to help your business grow.


Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to help shape the future of your organisation by using government funding to gain highly trained staff. Apprentices are typically aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification – from GCSEs or equivalent (including functional skills) up to degree level.

Funding may be available to employ an apprentice if you’re in England. We can help and let you know which of our qualifications are suitable for the apprenticeship you have in mind.

Bespoke Qualifications

Create your own bespoke qualifications, to add value to your in-house training, CPD and short course offerings and achieve endorsement from Focus Awards.

Our ‘Focus on Quality Provision’ (FQP) Scheme offers businesses that become one of our recognised centres the freedom to develop non regulated qualifications that meet the needs and requirements of business with an extra quality assurance endorsement.

On successful completion of an FQP endorsed non-regulated qualification, learners will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement. Their certificate will evidence and demonstrate that the learner has achieved a qualification that requires dedication, hard work and subject matter knowledge.

If you would like to discuss what we can do to identify and support the skills needs of your business please call us on 0845 8620 068 or e-mail and an adviser will be glad to help.
